The three-week public consultation goes on until Monday, January 30.

People's views will help shape the vision, which includes aspirations and opportunities to lift the town centre's overall offer, including shopping and leisure, housing, transport links and its visual appearance.

In a joint statement, the council's political group leaders, Cllrs Graham Plant, Kay Grey, Trevor Wainwright and Adrian Myers, said: 'The public have identified Great Yarmouth town centre as a top priority, and the borough council has responded with the Town Centre Initiative, which has already helped to boost the town centre.'

The draft Masterplan can be read in full by going to at www.great-yarmouth.gov.uk/have-your-say or call in at the Town Hall for more details.
